Finding the opposite of angels

Bayonetta 2 sound designer Daisuke Sakata touched on how he goes about designing sounds for his games in a recent post on the PlatinumGames blog. In particular, Sakata talks about the presence of both angel and demon enemies in Bayonetta 2, and how he created sounds for each.

He stated that the angelic sounds were taken from the first game, as he had already figured out his overall concept as to how angels should sound. His big challenge was figuring out what a demonic sound was, as those enemies were not in the first game.

Sakata stated that if angelic sounds could be described as "sacred and divine," then he figured that demonic sounds would be best characterized by the opposite, with words like "profane and unholy." He said that he started from that concept and used those keywords as a guide.

Bayonetta 2 will be released in October for the Wii U and will include a copy of the original Bayonetta ported to Wii U with enhancements. There were no innuendos in this post, so here you go: Bayonetta 2 makes me feel profane and unholy.

What, no "If you need to learn how to talk to a lady, ask your mom"? At least this probably-old-but-new-to-me Bayonetta 2 soundboard has Enzo's catchphrase. I feel bad for making it to the end of the game before realizing he'd been left behind. What a goof. A foul-mouthed, lovable goof.

Outside of Devil May Cry 3, Bayonetta is one of the finest action games of all time. The action systems were so clean, so precise, and so rewarding that it leaves pretty much everything these days in the dust. Bayonetta 2 doesn't change a whole lot, and that's perfectly okay with me.

Minor confession to make: I haven't played Bayonetta. Yeah, I hear it's good, but I just never got around to it. It happens. Heading into a quick hands-on session with Bayonetta 2, I figured my inexperience wouldn't matter much. Wow, was I ever wrong. Now a few hours removed from the demo, my head's still spinning from trying to discern exactly what the hell just happened.
